How about a "Forums Games" forum? A place where you can post puzzles, riddles, jokes, friendly competition and more. I could easily find a lot of fun things to post here. It would add a challenge for those using the forums.

Here is an Example
__________

I have forests, but no trees.
I have lakes, but no water.
I have roads, but no cars.

What Am I?
__________

The answer is for you to find out. Even if this idea is a failure at least you have this one to test your mind. ^^

The answer could also be Minecraft. There are no single trees, only tree blocks. You can make roads but cars are extremely hard because of the shape. And you can make lakes but water is merely blue see through blocks that slow you down.

However, in the real world, Trees, Cars, and Water are entities, and in Minecraft, Trees, Cars (or at least car shaped builds) and water are also entities, so that answer would be wrong.

Give me food and I shall live. Give me drink and I shall die. What am I?

'What happened in 1961 that will not happen again for over 4000 years?'

If you turn '1961' upside down, it'll still be the same....
